Happy Mother's Day!
A year ago, I would have laughed had someone told me there would come a day-- a Mother's Day mind you-- where I would find such sheer joy in watching my husband try to juggle a baby while loading the dishwasher and sweeping the floor (the later two are 'not fun' tasks Jon volunteered to accomplish while I laid on the couch in celebration of mom's day)! My, how things quickly change! :) I'm constantly in awe of God's blessings in the form of a child. In the past few weeks, since Haven's arrival, realizing how blessed I have been for the past twenty six years in the form of a mother. It's so cliche, but I had no idea the selflessness of my mom, until put in a mothering role myself; and I'm certain my gratefulness for all she's done and been for me will only increase as Haven grows up and our family grows larger. Happy Mother's Day Momma (aka- Oma) I'm so thankful for your love and leadership. I'm glad Haven falls under the same wing. I love you, Jen
